Former Accra Basketball League (ABL) lead Center Romeo Enan had an impressive but short run in the just ended AfroCan Basketball Tournament.

The competition exclusively for players playing on the African continent’s maiden edition came to an end this past weekend with Democratic Republic of Congo winning the title via an 82-61 win over Kenya in the final game.

Ivory Coast got eliminated earlier in the tournament held in Bamako, Mali early after losing all three games played in a disappointing outing for the West African nation.

However, 6 foot 11 inch defender Enan was a sole bright spot for the Elephants as he averaged 11 points, 6.7 rebounds and a steal in 21 minutes across three games.

Enan played in the ABL for heavyweight Braves of Customs and won several league titles. During his stay in Ghana, he also helped Accra Technical University to a host of titles including the 2015 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Championship.

He was later named Tertiary Player of the Year at the Ghana Basketball Awards; presently he plays for Dalia Sportive Grombalia in the Tunisian League.
